ShoreTrips says...

In St. Kitts, you will have a chance to interact with dolphins in the Caribbean and not in a pool or aquarium! Just off the shore....

If you just go jump out in the middle of the ocean, it isn't likely that you will run into a dolphin. If, by a miracle, you do run into a dolphin, it is even less likely they will get close enough for you to hug. If, by an even greater miracle, you are able to hug this dolphin, please let us know as we will follow you where you go next. For the sake of success rate and to avoid questioning your sanity, we recommend that you take this opportunity to get up close and personal with one of the oceans' most endearing creatures!

Your program begins with an explanation of the lifestyle of dolphins. With a better understanding and a life jacket strapped on, you will enter the water with your trainer by descending a set of stairs to a submerged platform. The water will be waist deep and provides the perfect setting to interact with some of the smartest animals in the world.

Photos will be taken of your dolphin kiss and will be available for purchase after your encounter.
